[mythtv-users] MythVideo: Consecutive files and IMDB data

Hello all,

I've only recently added MythVideo to my Myth setup and it's a great 
addition. I love it! the cover art stuff alone would be worth installing 
the plugin, but the IMDB details make me wonder how I lived without it.

I'm having trouble with 2 things ..

1) Is there a way to play files consecutively?
I have some films that are broken up into 2 files. Can I play one after 
the other without having to come back to MythVideo after part A has 
finished in order to play part B?
Also, parts A and B are currently displayed as 2 separate files. can 
they be combined to just make one entry in the listings?

2) The IMDB lookup is great, but can this really only be done in the 
setup section?
If I add a new film to my vied folder, I don't really want to go through 
all of my video files (a lot of them!) listed in the MythVideo setup  
and then manually find the new file in order to do an IMDB lookup. Is 
there any way to do this from the gallery view from within MythVideo its
